    Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance and no assurance can be made that the profits will be achieved or that substantial losses will not be incurred. The value of shares and any income from them can increase or decrease. An investor may not get back the amount originally invested. Where investment is made in currencies other than the investor's base currency, the value of those investments, and any income from them, will be affected by movements in exchange rates.  This effect could be unfavourable as well as favourable. Levels and bases for taxation may change. Further specific risks may arise in relation to specific investments and you should review the risk factors very carefully before investing. Intended risk profile of the Fund may change overtime. The Fund is designed for long-term investors.
